What's the difference between a river, a creek and a stream?  
What's a brook, rivulet or rill?

The truth of the matter is, that according to the U.S. Geological Survey, "There are no official definitions for generic terms as applied to geographic features.  Most descriptions are ambiguous at best."   The difference between a river and a creek are indefinite.  Both are called by the USGS as "linear flowing bodies of water".  There are no hierarchies, such as a creek flows into a river.  Since broad agreement on such definitions are almost impossible to be agreed upon, no such official classifications exist!

Colloquial usage of terms, local customs, and differences amongst countries to describe flowing bodies of water, add further to the confusion.  For example, the use of the word "creek" is very common in Australia, while the word "stream" is used more often in England.

Let's agree that the term "stream" applies to all shapes and sizes of "linear bodies of flowing water" thereby making rivers, creeks, brooks, rivulets or rills all streams.

With the above understanding, let's examine some of the typical characteristics applied to naming flowing water.

Stream - is any body of water flowing in a channel or watercourse.

River - a natural stream of water fairly large in size that flows in a definite course or channel or series of diverging and converging channels.  Rivers are usually freshwater and flow towards another river, a lake, ocean, lake or sea.

Creek - is a stream that may not flow all year long or may be intermittent. People tend to call small streams of water creeks.  In Britain, people use the term creek to describe a narrow inlet through the shore.

Rill - is a small water stream, usually used to describe a shallow water channel no more than a few tens of centimetres deep.

Did you know....
that some people define creeks as small rivers known as '"rivulets"?

Scenery & Landscapes


 

 

 

 

“There is a serene
and settled majesty
to woodland scenery
that enters into 
the soul and delights
and elevates it,
and fills it with
noble inclinations.”  

~ Washington Irving ~

 

 

 

 

“I went to the woods
because I wished
to live deliberately,
to front only
t he essential facts
of life and see 
if I could not learn
what it had to teach,
and not,
when I came to die,
discover that I 
had not lived.”  

~ Henry David 
Thoreau ~

 

 

 

 

“Keep your faith
in all beautiful things.
In the sun 
when it is hidden.
In the spring 
when it is gone.” 

 
~ Roy Rolfe 
Gilson ~
